the altar on a moving platform, so he doesn't have to walk down the long aisle. sometimes he using a cane. his brothers says the doctors told hi not to take any more transatlantic trips. >>> he is also an nbc vattian analyst. george, good to see you. you and i are in somewhat frequent contact, as you send out notes about what's going on, but did anybody really see this coming? i nope he's talked about the possibility of retirement, but now? >> i was going to say, chris, it's an unexpected pleasure to see you today. this is a surprise to timing, not to fact. the pope has indicated on several previous indications if he ever came to the decision in prayer and conscience he could not give the service the church deserved, he would leave, not stand on his ego or stand on ceremony. he would clear the path for a new pope. the timing is a bit surprising, but when it happens in 719 years, it's always going to be surprising. >> you know what i thought, george, i thought he must -- do you think he's slowing down or he's really not well? >> i saw the pope in december shortly after he made six new card
've done in cuts, about 600 billion to 700 billion in new revenues. i'd like to see us end at a point where we're 50/50. i think the president going out to the country and saying this should be a balanced plan about 50/50, the american people agree with that. but as dana and lynn were pointing out, it's going to be hard to get to that here in the congress. and while the american people will just blame congress, and i think that's quite true they won't distinguish so much between the parties, the reality is, democrats have been willing as we've seen from the $2.2 trillion in deficit reduction we've already done to more than meet the gop half way. but the gop's going to have to be a negotiating partner with us and a lot of the fight right here on the hill right now is not between democrats and republicans. it's between republicans and republicans in the house of representatives. >> they'll be looking at congress and saying democrats or republicans, it's your fault. >> there'll be many that won't discriminate between the two parties. but here on the ground, there is, i think, recognition that
that are being used? >> let me just say that my heart just goes out to the newtown parents and the entire community that was just devastated by this violence and so we see this in a much smaller way, all across our country every day, with violence in general. i want to make sure that we're looking at this issue intelligently and from all -- why adam lanza did what he did. unprecedented levels of violent games, music, so on. none of these things that we're talking about right now that are the biggest in the message is really going to help what happened in newtown. so i'm disappointed that we're doing a knee jerk reaction, only talking about it from one end, i think we have to talk about mental illness, about the breakdown of the family, about violence, about holding people who use guns and violent actions accountable, such as in the federal law where there's a penalty for just possessing a gun. >> i'm not sure that you can say there has been a conversation about the role of mental illness and there have been a lot of discussions on both sides of the aisle about that. and so i'm wondering d
understand 5,000 data samples per second. which is good for business. because planes use less fuel, spend less time on the ground and more time in the air. suddenly, faraway places don't seem so...far away. ♪ >>> good morning. i'm chris jansing, live in vatican city. you can see the vatican behind me. and boy, there is an interesting energy in this city. preparations underway for the conclave. that will, of course, elect the successor to pope benedict after that shocking decision yesterday to step down. and another big story we're following is back at home, because the president is putting the finishing touches on the first state of the union speech of his second term. and we'll have a lot more on that coming up in this hour. but this morning, we are starting to get new information about pope benedict, and particularly about his health. decisions that may have played into his shocking announcement to abdicate. for example, we now know this morning, the pope has had a pacemaker for some time and actually had a minor operation to replace its batteries three months ago. we're also hearing
for him, but at the same time, we understand, he makes us understand that this was a decision made with serenity. what i've heard is that he went and he divested his investments and he simply said, it's in god's hands. and i think that trust in god that he's shown for his ponti pontifica pontificate, he'll continue to follow through. >> but a kind of a paradox. this is a very traditional pope. he brought back some of the latin and pre-vatican procedures the to the mass, yet he is charting this whole new territory. i think it has a lot to do, frankly, with modern medicine and the fact that we keep people alive a lot longer, but as he pointed out, he's leading this huge organization of 1.1 billion people and it takes a certain amount of stamina and energy. >> there are two things that your comments make me think of. one, we've kind of cast him as this traditional pope, but he shows up on the scene, you know, the rottweiler, god's rottweiler, and about how god is loved. the next thing you know, he's first creating this big ruckus, but then the next thing you know, we have this incredi
office has said it will cost us 750,000 jobs. >> but you know -- you know what the counter is. two things really. one, they say the real problem in terms of jobs and losing jobs if you start to raise taxes because that will be what is the real hit on the economy. and then there are people like nebraska's governor, dave hyneman, told "the new york times," the white house is engaged in scare tactics. every governor in this country knows how to cut their budget by 2%, 3%. the white house ought to learn how to do it. what about those? >> is the non partisan independent congressional budget office engaged in scare tactics, too? of course not. they say -- very clearly -- that if you suck $110 billion out of the economy between march 1 and the end of this year, 750,000 americans are going to see their jobs lost. lack of jobs gained. that's a full third, one-third of economic output in this country between now and the end of the year. this is not the obama administration. these are the non partisan professionals of the congressional budget office. that's why it is really for to replace these very
